Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author Iris Johansen comes a explosive, compelling new thriller. 

With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon's final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: to keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber - the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. 

Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel's longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows it's impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead. As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a nuclear explosion that will lay waste to the West Coast, they also fight a growing attraction to each other - an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself. 

In this gripping, fast-paced novel full of dark secrets and tangled lies, one thing is clear: Everyone has a vendetta, and no one will rest until getting revenge.

A terrific and exciting book

It should be classified as another Catherine Ling book, not Eve Duncan with only one sentence mentioning Eve & Joe. I really enjoyed hearing about Rachel Venable & Jude Brandon, hope there’s more with them. Also please give us more of Catherine & Richard Cameron, they could become such s great duo. Great narration by Elisabeth Rodgers. This book has lots of exciting twists & turns and left us wondering about Carl Venable. Until the next one I guess. Don’t miss out on a great book.

Always great! Thanks Iris

Excellent edge of the seat story. The story in complete, but some of the characters stories feels like there should be more. Maybe we will meet them again. (I hope) Elisabeth is delightful to listen to.

I'm not used to being bored by Johansen

I'm 4 hours into a 14 hour book, and I can't bring myself even to get to the halfway mark. I am so bored.

Iris Johansen didn’t disappoint

Full of twists and turns just like all her books. On thing that I found disappointing was the main character Clair was just too goody-two shoes. I enjoyed knowing most of the characters which is something that Iris Johansen does she builds on her characters. Can’t wait to listen to another one.

Painful writing

While the overall storyline was a typical action-packed adventure, the characters were frustratingly written. Their personalities didn't fit, their supposed backstory. The female characters were stereotyped and way too dramatic about everything. I was eye rolling every 15 mins. Difficult to finish.
